      I absolutely loved this recipe it was so easy and its pretty hard to mess up as long as you can follow directions. <br/>I made it twice and both times everyone loved it, it goes way beyond your normal veggie platter! Easter was perfect with our little bunny (that didn't stay a bunny for long ) :)

      be careful where the recipe says to put the egg bath on before the bread rises, when i did that and covered it with a cloth the bunny stuck to the cloth! put the egg on after the dough rises!

      This turned out great and was very well received. I used double batch of "White Machine Bread" #10331 and followed the easy instructions to shape it. The sliced almond teeth went really askew during baking. I carefully removed them, poked the tip of a knife in to make 2 small slits where I wanted them to be and inserted the sliced almonds in the slits. When I make it again, I'll just add the teeth like this after baking.*******UPDATE*******4/23/11: I just made this for the 3rd consecutive Easter! I guess it's now officially part of our family tradition! Thanks again for a great recipe!
